Danny Trejo and Vinnie Jones say Welcome to Graveland

Posted by LiveFor on April 30, 2010

Tammi Sutton is directing a cool sounding biker movie. She also wrote the script as an homage to Sam Peckinpah and Sergio Leone.

In an empty desert landscape, one woman takes up the classic role of the avenger, taking us on a motorcycle-driven journey of murder and mayhem with submissive male companions and murderous thugs along for the ride.

The Examiner have the news that Justin Kell, owner of the Hollywood’s “Glory Sales and Services” is building the bikes for the film and every motorcycle will be custom-built according to the personality of each character and the actor he plays.

Production Weekly had the news of Danny Trejo (Machete, Predators) and Vinnie Jones’ involvement. No word on who the female lead will be, but could turn out to be a cool modern day western. Filming begins in July.

Posted by LiveFor on April 18, 2010

Hobo With A Shotgun was one of the fake trailers made for the Tarantino / Rodriguez Grindhouse project. Machete was another one that is being made into a feature starring Danny Trejo and is due out on 3rd September 2010.

Getting back to Hobo – the trailer was entered into a competition and won to take its place in the Canadian release of Grindhouse.

Jason Eisener begins production on the feature version of Hobo With A Shotgun on Monday.

The best news is that Rutger Hauer will be playing the Hobo. Let him bring on his Hitcher madness for this one.

Below is the fake trailer that started it all.

The Expendables – Official trailer for Stallone and friends new film

Posted by LiveFor on March 31, 2010

Yes folks you do get to see Arnie, Stallone, and Bruce on screen together for the first time in the trailer. Anyone else get a little shiver when they saw that? Now if we could get them together in more than just a cameo. It even has the Eighties style voice over guy.

A group of mercenaries is hired to infiltrate a South American country and overthrow its ruthless dictator. Once the mission begins, the men realize things aren’t quite as they appear, finding themselves caught in a dangerous web of deceit and betrayal. With their mission thwarted and an innocent life in danger, the men struggle with an even tougher challenge — one that threatens to destroy this band of brothers.

It stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, Randy Couture, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Steve Austin, Danny Trejo and Eric Roberts.

The Expendables opens August 13, 2010

Predators – First sneak peak and a poster

Posted by LiveFor on March 13, 2010


A bold new chapter in the Predator universe, Predators was shot on location under Rodriguez’s creative auspices at the filmmaker’s Austin-based Troublemaker Studios, and is directed by Nimród Antal. The film stars Adrien Brody as Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they’ve been brought together on an alien planet… as prey. With the exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers – mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members – human “predators” that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators. In addition to Adrien Brody, the film stars Topher Grace, Alice Braga, and Laurence Fishburne. Co-starring are Walton Goggins, Danny Trejo, Oleg Taktarov and Mahershalalhashbaz Ali.

Check out the Predator Dog below via io9 and the poster from STYD.

The footage debuted at SXSW.

What do you reckon? Is this the film to bring the Predator back to the forefront of kick-ass monster action?

A bold new chapter in the Predator universe, Predators was shot on location under Rodriguez’s creative auspices at the filmmaker’s Austin-based Troublemaker Studios, and is directed by Nimród Antal. The film stars Adrien Brody as Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they’ve been brought together on an alien planet… as prey. With the exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers – mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members – human “predators” that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators. In addition to Adrien Brody, the film stars Topher Grace, Alice Braga, and Laurence Fishburne. Co-starring are Walton Goggins, Danny Trejo, Oleg Taktarov and Mahershalalhashbaz Ali.

Predators was written by Alex Litvak & Mike Finch based upon characters created by Jim Thomas & John Thomas. The producers are Robert Rodriguez and Elizabeth Avellàn. Twentieth Century Fox releases Predators in theaters everywhere July 9, 2010.

Commented Robert Rodriguez: “My director Nimród Antal and I are excited to bring this first look at Predators to Austin’s SXSW Film Festival, an event that’s become vital to the filmmaking scene. Austin is my home and I’m proud that Predators was conceived and filmed here.”

Death Race: Frankenstein Lives – Sean Bean, Ving Rhames and Danny Trejo join Luke Goss

Posted by LiveFor on February 16, 2010

Well I thought this was going to be a low budget straight to DVD prequel to Paul W S Anderson’s 2008 film, but casting news from STYD makes me think that they are chucking a lot of money at this one as a few famous faces are joining Luke Goss (Hellboy 2) and Tanit Phoenix. Filming began over the weekend in South Africa on Death Race: Frankenstein Lives.

Goss plays Carl “Luke” Lucas, a man framed by the mob for the murder of a police officer. Sean Bean will co-star as Luke’s old mob boss; Ving Rhames is the man responsible for giving the greenlight to the Death Race (he’s apparently a “Rupert Murdoch” type); Danny Trejo is Luke’s pal in prison and Frederick Koehler will reprise his role as “Lists.”

Danny Trejo’s stock is on the rise with a starring role in Predators and Machete this new Death Race film is shaping up to be better than the first one.

Predators – Photos from the shoot. Look at the Predators

Posted by LiveFor on January 16, 2010


Here are some great behind the scenes photos from Nimród Antal directed Predators produced by Robert Rodriguez. You can see Adrien Brody and a whole heap of Predators. Lots more pics here.

The film follows the story of a group of people (soldiers, cops, killers etc) who find themselves stranded on an alien planet and are “hunted by members of a merciless alien race known as Predators.”

The main cast is as follows:
* Royce, a Steve McQueen type – Adrien Brody
* Cuchillo, a Mexican enforcer for a drug cartel who has twin uzis strapped to his back – Danny Trejo
* Nikolai, a bear of a Russian armed with a four-barrel gas-powered rotary machine gun – Oleg Taktarov
* Isabelle, a French woman armed with a sniper rifle – Alice Braga
* Stans, a San Quentin prisoner with a shaved head, a scorpion tatto on his neck and armed with a prison-made knife – Maybe Walter Goggins
* Mombasa, an African member of the Sierra Leone death squad – Mahershalalhashbaz Ali
* Hanzo, a bad ass Japanese Yakuza enforcer
* Edwin, an unassuming man who was formerly on the FBI’s most-wanted list – possibly Topher Grace

So I think we are seeing Mombasa, Nikolai and Royce. Now if we only knew who Laurence Fishburne was playing.
